The Job Show is coming back to Sunderland.

The award winning recruitment and careers event has teamed up again with Make it Sunderland to bring together employers and organisations from across the region at The Stadium of Light on Thursday, November 8 from 10.30am until 3pm.

The event will showcase dozens of companies recruiting for a range of sectors.

Sunderland City Council leader Coun Graeme Miller said: “This is the fourth time we have welcomed The Job Show to the city and we are delighted to be hosting it once again.

“We recognise, not only in Sunderland but right across the North East Region, successful businesses are providing a wide range of jobs and creating great prospects for people of all ages and abilities.

“The Job Show attracts job seekers from Teesside to Northumberland and everywhere else in between. It also provides opportunities for individuals wishing to access training or to have the chance to learn new skills or discover new talents – all of which helps in boosting the local and regional economy.”
